Who are we - We are a friendly group of people who are interested in photography – ability wise some of us are more accomplished and experienced than others some of whom are beginners. Equipment varies greatly – one or two have Digital SLR cameras but most of us have much more modest and basic equipment. Most of us are also church goers but this is not essential to be a member of the group.

Viewfinder meetings - we meet approximately once a month in the Parish Centre usually on the last Monday evening of the month at 7.30 pm. 

What do we do - We usually set ourselves a photographic task each month and at our meetings we look at and comment on the photographs we have taken.  If anyone has a problem over taking, printing or presenting photographs we also try to address this.  Tasks over the last few months have included – Journeys, reflections, close ups and Chester le Street.  We usually arrange a couple of outings each year – one in the Spring/Summer and one in the Autumn.

Future meetings are planned for the following dates in 2018

21st May - Footwear

 25th June – TBA

7th July - Day trip away to Seaham

23rd  July – Photographs from our outing

We have a couple of display boards in one of  the Parish Centre corridors and regularly hold exhibitions of our work.
